Cabomba aquatica


Slender-tipped aquatic plant from South America that needs a lot of light. Leaf blades look like feathered fans, giving this plant an extremely graceful appearance. Soft water is absolutely essential for successful cultivation. If the tops of any shoots reach the water’s surface, the plant may produce small floating leaves and yellow flowers. This is another stem plant that belongs in a group of several stems. Combine Cambomba aquatica with the large leaves of the Echinodorus for an attractive contrast.
